Some of the most beautiful work of this craftsman, and many others, are in this book “Liège Gunmakers through their Work. 1800 - 1950”.

Nagant 1877 (Copy)

Here is a pistol with two juxtaposed barrels in caliber 380 short, beautifully made and in very good condition, strongly inspired by the Remington-Nagant pistol adopted for the Belgian Gendarmerie in 1877 (in 9 mm “Belgian“); this gun has two triggers, while the belgian gendarmerie has only one (which was also the subject of the Nagant patent).

It is surprising that such a weapon, already outdated when it was adopted in 1877, was still commercialized after 1894.

The markings

Peron: inspection, after 1853;

ELG on star in crowned oval: accepted, between 1893 and 1968;

R crowned: barrel stripped, since 1894

M under star: countermark of a controller since 1877.
